English: Engine Driver’s Grave, Corwen The gravestone has the following epitaph – His last drive is over, death has put on the break His soul has been signalled its last journey to take When death sounds its whistle, the steam of life fails And his mortal clay shunted till the last trumpet calls.

And as the casket went down the spindle

I felt the world has lost one more good soul

Why do relations and contacts dwindle

Why do the death bells toll?

She had a smile , a smile of peace

She had been troubled death did her tease

Yet as she lay, she was a picture of calm

 After all, she has been and always a Mom

 

As the family was shrouded in grief

 As the people petered in to share

 She was there as virgin as a new leaf

 Disturb her, even Death wouldn’t dare

 A handful of mud on the coffin

 Some beautiful roses were there to say

 Whether it is a king or a ragamuffin

 Six feet of land is all we need anyway


With tears in his eyes my friend sang the hymn

 Above all power, it brought me tears to the brim

 For all the sufferings she had in her life

I would pray for her that her soul has no strife

 

Try as I might, to be his mother

 He knows he wont get another

 But words are all I had to give for her

 May her soul rest in peace forever
